|Brookdale Foundation Seeks Proposals for Alzheimer's Disease
Deadline: July 1, 2009
A program of the Brookdale Foundation Group ( http://www.brookdalefoundation.org/ ), the Brookdale National Group Respite Program awards seed grants to organizations working to develop and implement social model group respite programs.
The goals of the program are to provide persons with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia with opportunities to engage in meaningful social and recreational activities in a secure and supportive setting in order to maximize their cognitive and social abilities, and to provide relief and support to family members and other primary caregivers.
Funding is available for up to forty organizations working to develop new dementia-specific programs. Applicants must be non- profit 501(c)(3) organizations or public agencies. All proposed programs must provide day services specifically for people affected by Alzheimer's disease or other related disorders. Grant funds may not be used to support or expand the hours, days, or service capacity of existing programs.
Selected organizations will each receive grant support of $7,500 in the first year, renewable for $3,000 in the second year. The sponsoring organization must provide a 1:1 match of cash or equiv- alent in-kind support.
Complete program guidelines are available at the Brookdale Foundation Web site.
